Here’s a great way to “get things moving downstairs” in the morning that won’t make you wiggy for the rest of the day like coffee will. It’ll wake up your digestive system before eating breakfast and get you ready for the day, so to speak. Most people who try it swear by it.
Ready for this amazing secret recipe?
Hot water + lemon
That’s it. Put on the kettle, slice a piece of lemon, pour. Simple enough to add to the busiest schedule and oh-so worth it.
The warm water applies mass to the digestive system kicking it into action. Also, warm water will leave the stomach quicker than cold water since the body doesn’t have to expend energy warming it up first. The lemon is added since it actually aids the bowels in eliminating waste more efficiently and it will give you a good dose of micronutrients to boot.
It’s a simple trick, used for centuries and worth adding to your repertoire.
You can thank me later.
